While I’m still slogging away with the mid- and end-term grading I mentioned yesterday, here’s a photo of a stack of salvaged (and still intact) railroad ties and rails I shot in Boston over the weekend. Sometimes if you walk on the wrong side of the tracks (or in this case, if you explore the backside of the Boston Convention Center), you’ll catch a glimpse of the underside of the tracks. Compared to a pile of salvaged railroad ties and rails, a mere paper pile seems a bit less intimidating.
